Its a bit like that at this the number one pastry shop in downtown . They are so busy all the time you will feel lucky to be served . The cakes are well worth the wait and shove too. Try the coconut cakes .... actually everything they make is good . There is some Italian influence in the cakes... More

Some of the best ice cream I have ever tasted. We paid more and was walking away. The young man at the counter who spoke no English called us back and told my Arabic speaking friend that we had overpaid. We just ate more ice cream! Wish the store were larger.

I love this place , although the sweets is too tasty , it's too heavy. The place itself need be redecorated and they need to take care more about hygiene

Returned several times after stumbling past this little gem in downtown Cairo. Freshly made mille fueille, baklawa, kunalfa, pastries and cakes that will set any sweet tooth salivating for a fraction of the cost of Patissere Valerie! This place is popular with locals and you will have to be quite assertive to obtain service at busy times but it is... More

Found this on our last day and got up extra early to visit before we had to get our flight home- my only regret is not buying more delicious cookies and baklava- i should have spent my last LE in here! Always busy- loved by locals- not many tourists but still seek this place out. Just remember you have to... More

I have been buying all my sweets for my friends back in Greece from El Abd and everybody loves them. They are dry (an often problem with this kind of pastry sweets in y country is that they make them very syrupy and wet) yet sweet enough. Very well packaged, very clean and the prices seem ok and absolutely delicious.... More
